Ambush at the furnace

We’re over half the way through the project!  We have some beautiful scenes.  But we need more help!  We need to raise another $400K.  It has been a long journey starting in 2013—Any and all help is so very appreciated!  We are happy to accept fully tax deductible donations to help finish filming UNION. If you need to make a charitable donation for 2016 why not help support this uniquely beautiful love story set against the backdrop of America’s Civil War and the women who fought behind the scenes.  Thank you for your support!

  1. My gosh, Whit. This is an incredibly moving work of art. The chase, the haunting music in the background, and your monologue as you lay on the ground are such heart filling moments that I just sat stunned. Awesome!

  2. Whitney,
    When will Union be finished shooting? I would ask when it will be released, but I doubt very seriously it would go to a theater near me in Lexington, NC. So will probably have to wait to purchase it in Blu-Ray or DVD.
